Metal Roof Bees (video in link)

This video really shows more of the opening process and then the closing up of the structure afterwards.  These bees have been in this space for a few months. The thermal camera was almost useless on the days I was trying to get a reading. The metal roof was hot, even on cloudy days. (I […]

SS Minnow – Boat Bees (video in link)

Bees have been in this boat for at least 2 years, according to the comb color, texture, etc. The comb wound up being quite a challenge to remove, as the fuel lines, steering cables, electrical lines, and more were all running through the rear space of this boat.

Though bees were active in this space days prior to the removal – it may have simply been robbing activity.   The placement of the hive raised a concern when I evaluated the colony – as it looked like the hive would be exposed to some intense sun exposure – and the week I evaluated – […]

The comb and bees were […]

He mentioned to me that he knew the bees had been there a while […]

Grossly Mis-Diagnosed (…or they are NOT Africanized)

I received a call from Texas singer-songwriter Kim Townsend about honeybees that were in her family home just outside of the DFW Metroplex.  She had originally called a hobby beekeeper, who got in DEEP over his head – and he had not even started a removal yet.  Unprepared, he tried to pry up flashing with […]

Lions and Tigers and Bees, Oh My!

Honeybees have lived in the roof space of this breezeway between the house and garage for at LEAST the last 8 years (since the homeowners bought the house – and for years before they bought it).  This property is located in Wylie, Texas, and was hit hard by the hail storms earlier this spring.  When […]
